Plenty of gold medals have been handed out in Park City, but the most recent comes from a summer event rather than one involving snow.
The International Mountain Biking Association recently named the Park City area as a Gold Level Ride Center.
Not only did Park City earn the gold, the biking community broke a record in the process, earning a score of 96 out of a possible 100. It's the first time a score higher than 90 has been totaled.
To tally the score, judges looked at several criteria including number of miles, quality of trails, quality of rooms and restaurants, bike shops, trailhead facilities, bike parks, brew pubs, and cooperation from government agencies, businesses and land owners.
Most of the mountain-biking opportunities in Park City are provided by the three ski resorts: Canyons, Deer Valley and Park City Mountain.
Here's a look at how those resorts, and others across the state, will be accommodating mountain bikers this summer.
